"His fantasy is never gratuitous: originating from his deepest self, it meets the collective unconscious of our time and reflects our anxieties back to us, sweetened by a smiling irony, a tolerant wisdom.”

Constantin Jelenski 

Following our presentation of a monographic booth at Independent 20th Century in New York, we are thrilled to present a monographic exhibition dedicated to one of the most overlooked Surrealist Italian artists, Stanislao Lepri (1905-1980). 

The show will include over forty paintings and works on paper, retracing Lepri’s career, from his earliest production to the end of the 1970s. The exhibition is designed as a journey into Lepri’s oneiric universe, whose figures speak of human emotions, inner fears, desires, and distress with a sharp, satirizing irony. Skeletons, hooded figures, gigantic cats, monstrous animals, and naked figures of Medieval and Renaissance reminiscence inhabit a Surreal world, which might belong to a fairy tale as well as to a nightmare.
